Atlanta’s own Lil Scrappy stopped by my show recently to play his new single “No Love” for us. We talked about the upcoming “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” reunion, and of course he addressed engagement allegations.
More interestingly, Scrappy explained why he believes he is bipolar, and whether or not he will be returning for the second season of VH1′s hit reality show.
Pop the hood for more…
Egypt: You’re on air with Egypt. Man, Scrappy’s in the building.
Lil Scrappy: You feel me.
Egypt: Man. Two days late. No wait wait wait. Two weeks late. Right? He was supposed to be here last week. You stood me up.
Scrappy: A week and two days late.
Egypt: A man gets one time to stand me up. Twice you don’t get a third date. But he promised me lunch after this.
Scrappy: Yeah you can have lunch or whatever you want. I’m definitely sorry blame it on my driver.
Egypt: On your driver? That’s your story?
Scrappy: This time. Last time it was me.
Egypt: Last time your alarm didn’t go off or something.
Scrappy: It didn’t go off.
Egypt: This time the driver…
Scrappy: It’s the driver. His car couldn’t go over 100.
Egypt: So alright, “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” we’re waiting on the reunion now.
Scrappy: Yeah and it’s crazy because the reunion is two segments.
Egypt: They always do a Part 2.
Scrappy: Yeah, it’s long as hell. I was in that thing all day.
Egypt: So I know there’s a lot you can’t tell us because your contractually binded not to be able to talk about it right?
Scrappy: Right. Til after it goes off.
Egypt: So let’s just address some allegations then.
Egypt: Now I had Erica up here what was that three weeks ago and you showed up with her. I was so surprised to see you in the studio. The big talk on the blogs that day was that you guys had gotten engaged. Now you dismissed that immediately. There was no ring to prove such, but then, a picture comes out which is supposedly an engagement photo shoot that you two did.
Egypt: Now Scrappy, when do you ever dress in a tuxedo? Is this an engagement photo shoot?
Scrappy: That was actually a Rolling Out photo shoot for Love & Hip Hop.
Egypt: Well a source over there claims that you gave hi an exclusive about your engagement.
Egypt: And that on the shoo she was rocking her brand new diamond ring and a pair of color coordinated- oh, ya’ll color coordinated- and your daughter was there too.
Scrappy: (Laughing) First of all just want to clear that up.
Egypt: Ya’ll were matching. You took it back to the 90’s!
Scrappy: Let me clear that up. I don’t even remember being color coordinated. I remember taking some good pictures though, you feel me? But never was color coordinated because me and her had two different stylists. I’m just saying, no rings involved. I hate they told you that- put that out- you feel me?
Egypt: Why do I have a feeling we know something we’re just not supposed to know yet? Are we putting you between a rock and a hard place?
Scrappy: I’m definitely not in a rock and a hard place.
Egypt: As long as we use the word allegedly you can’t get in trouble with VH1.
Scrappy: You feel me.
Egypt: Speaking of which- you and Stevie, Stevie J., you all cool now? Did you guys work through your differences?
Scrappy: I’m a man. We men, so if I see him and he wants to do something, I’m with it. If he don’t I’m cool too. I don’t want to go to jail.
Egypt: Come on we don’t want ya’ll fighting. Especially not you because your teeth are too pretty to fight. You weren’t born with those teeth were you?
Scrappy: No I wasn’t. In Jesus name. (Laughs)
Egypt: (Laughing) So okay here’s another allegation. We’re just having fun. He knows I’m just picking with him. So, Erica revealed on one of the previous episodes of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta that she was dating an Italian real estate agent and although they had not slept together, in all fairness, but she was enjoying his company. So now of course they’re having a field day with this on the internet cause they said it didn’t sit right with you and you had to put your paws on him. Di you meet him?
Scrappy: I’ve spoken to him. I can’t really say too much but I’m trying to be a free man. I’m cool. (Laughs) I’ve spoken to him that’s all I’m going to say.
Egypt: Well let’s just say at that time ya’ll weren’t together together sooo-you were allowed to date somebody else but she wasn’t allowed to date somebody else?
Scrappy: I don’t have a problem with that, but once it’s over with, it’s over with, you feel me? Once I ain’t doing it no more, you can’t either. It’s done.
Egypt: Wait a minute, that’s the double standard!
Scrappy: Yeah it’s a double standard. I mean look, I’m going to tell the honest with women- how we look at it. We look at it like somebody is entering ya dig? We have an outside, ya’ll have an innie, ya dig? So the innie is way more intimate and you want to hold that in….you know what I’m saying? Than the outie, ya dig?
Egypt: That is the biggest crock of mess I ever heard in my life.
Scrappy: I’m just saying from a man’s point of view. Some stuff ya’ll shouldn’t do as women; some stuff we shouldn’t do as men. But hey.
Egypt: Should I take my shoe off on him now or later? Oh nevermind, Momma would be up in here in a minute. ‘I know you didn’t take your shoe off on my son!’ (Laughing) Shouts to Momma Dee!
Scrappy: (Laughing) Shouts to Momma Dee.
Egypt: We’re back it’s Lil Scrappy, “No Love.” We’ve been having fun picking on him and he’s picking on me. What else? What size shoe do you wear?
Egypt: Oh I can’t say nothing about that.
Scrappy: You feel me??
Egypt: Tell us, the girl Tocarra who was singing on your single, is that the Toccara I think it is?
Scrappy: I have no idea.
Egypt: What do you mean? You weren’t in the studio with her?
Scrappy: I don’t know her history or nothing like that. I just know that she’s a beautiful singer.
Egypt: Tocarra from “America’s Next Top Model” that’s who I’m talking about.
Scrappy: No no no.
Egypt: Because you don’t hear that name too often. So what is this Scrappy now…you came out with a comment that you believe you’re bipolar? You really truly believe you have bipolar disorder?
Scrappy: Yeah. I’ve been trying to run from it because I see my momma go through it with herself. She got bipolar like the worst. But I honestly have it too because my momma kept telling me like different people will be around and they’ll be like, well you’re bipolar. Like wow, but I feel like it’s a medicine thing. As long as I take it. My medicine in the morning, get my drift?
Egypt: Have you been diagnosed?
Scrappy: Nope. I will not let them diagnose me with it. I will not. I just pray. You feel me? I just pray and take my other medicine. Not that medicine. Not that medicine. Not that medicine.
Egypt: Woahhh!! I’m worried about you.
Scrappy: I’ll go take a shot or something. You trying to get me in trouble? (Laughing) Egypt you trying to get me in trouble?
Egypt: I’m not trying to get you in trouble. You’re getting yourself in trouble. I’m just asking questions. How we choose to answer them is how we choose to answer them. So wait, next season there will be another Love & Hip Hop, how could there not? It was the #1 reality show in the entire country so there’ll be another season. Are we going to see a little more of your life
Scrappy: I don’t even know if you’re going to see Scrappy on there. Like I don’t know, you’ll have to see. I talked to Mona and she is like casting right now for new people. I don’t know.
Egypt: They’re not going to get new people.
Scrappy: Oh no, they’re getting new people. My whole thing- I was definitely happy to do that one time, even though I know that I might be on the second- it’s adorable. No lie, it was fun. I had my little times when I was like look ya’ll from hell. You all need to get the hell up out my house. Like for real, with all this you got going on, Mona I love you but you got to go, you feel me? The majority of the time it was fun, real fun.
Egypt: Do you have any regrets about the season when you watched it back?
Scrappy: I want to say like some stuff that I have to wait until the reunion comes on, but there’s some stuff that I regret, you know what I’m saying? Man, a lot of stuff I regret. I lost and won with the show. I lost and I won.
Egypt: That’s real. I think that’s probably the realest thing you’ve said since you’ve been up here right now.
Scrappy: (Laughing) I gotta play with you. I can’t even…
Egypt: Scrappy I like you. I think you’re a cool dude.
Scrappy: I appreciate it.
Egypt: Even though you stood me up twice, just don’t do it again.
Scrappy: I’m so sorry. Like I said the independent album I got is out right now. The grustle, the grind and the hustle- go get that on itunes, at Best Buy, FYE. Single’s out right now, Helicopter, No Love, Bags, featuring Rasheeda we’re about to drop that right now. Helicopter actually got 2 Chainz Twist on it. Ya’ll go listen to that, it is stupid. The video is out- MTV Jams, MTV2 all that craziness. Get it.
Egypt: Get your paws off me.
